Blue Bird in a Cage...
Good morning everyone! I just love how this card turned out...what do you think? I'm entering this in the weekly challenge over at Joan's Gardens . This week Joan's challenge calls for the following:
Use a Bird Theme
Use a branch and leaves
Use Blue on your card
Use a frame
I used The Bird Sanctuary dies for the birdcage and the bird. The corners and leaves are Marianne dies. Before I shaped the flowers I added a yellow color wash to the centers then I glued a pearl in the center. Ranger distress inks were used for all color on this card. The paper is from Prima.
So wish me luck in the challenge. I love playing along each week whether I win or not, it just keeps me motivated to do something else creative. Why don't you join in this week. Go over to Joan's site and look around; the weekly challenge is posted at the top of the page. She also has a wonderful shop on this site and she has very reasonable prices. Each time I order from Joan I'm always so pleased with how the package arrives in pristine condition. Well done, Joan!
